The Twitter account of Turkey's Confederation of Progressive Trade Unions of Turkey (DİSK) was restricted on Nov. 9, amid parliamentary sessions around a critical labor law that the confederation opposed to.
"It's scandalous to suspend the account of a workers' union as debate around a critical law concerning workers is ongoing in parliament," said DİSK Communications Director Umar Karatepe as a response to the suspension.
Parlamentoda işçilerle ilgili çok kritik bir yasa görüşülürken bir işçi sendikası hesabını sınırlamak skandaldır!— umar karatepe (@azeryadigar) November 9, 2020
Elbette bu hesap @diskinsesi fazlaca tweet atmakta ve etkileşim almaktadır. Bu olağandışı değildir.
